Christmas Ornaments: China Glaze Ruby Pumps + LA Colors 24k Glitter

Following with EV's theme, I'm starting out with the plishes I used for Christmas! :D Since I didn't have a tree up, I needed glitter on my nails to compensate for the lack of shiny.

Base: China Glaze's Ruby Pumps
Tips: LA Colors' Art Deco 24k Glitter
Top coat: Seche Vite Dry Fast

The look I was going for, rather than a French mani, was gold dripping down from the tips. Not sure how successful I was. :P

Anyway...Ruby Pumps! I love it so much. (And so do a number of women who've commented on my nails!) The polish is a deep red jelly with a scattering of lighter red glitters in its depths. It is eye-catching while being perfectly work appropriate. My fave red plish!

Tacky Xmas: Zoya Ivanka + China Glaze Medallion

So... I did the most garish Christmas mani last year...But I thought, let's get into the tacky spirit, ey ey?? So here we go... my eye-searing first post!

Glitter French + Red & Clear Rhinestones
[Zoya Ivanka (3 coats), China Glaze Medallion (2 coats)]

Ivanka is a glass fleck green which is awesomely shiny, almost a foil effect as you can see... I obviously need more practice editing pics to show the colours accurately. Medallion is actually ridiculously shiny - small gold glitter and larger holo glitter. See here!

I only had this on for about a week. Glitter tips hide tipwear though!! =)
